An Everyday Linux User Review Of Elementary OS Loki 0.4

Elementary looks great. It is easy to install, easy to use and the applications are perfectly adequate for basic tasks. The big issue is the package manager. The biggest issue with Ubuntu is the package manager. The fact that somebody has had to go to the effort to create the Ubuntu After Install application shows there is a problem. Why can't Ubuntu or one of these derivatives grasp the bull by the horns and come up with a solution. People like to use Chrome yet all we get is Firefox or some basic equivalent. Chrome works with everything. It is by far the best browser and I don't want to settle for second best. If you don't want to include it as part of the main package manager add a simple tool for installing this and many other applications including Steam. On the whole though the distribution looks good and is simple to use and I do recommend it for the Everyday Linux User. Read more

Distributions and Kernels

  • What is your favorite Linux distribution?
    Of all the many questions you might ask an open source enthusiast, none may evoke quite the passionate response as asking which distribution they prefer. People choose a distribution for many reasons, from look and feel to stability, from speed to how it runs on older machines, from the pace of updates to simply which offers the packages they need. Whatever the reason, with so many distributions available, asking which one you use can be seen as a proxy for asking how you choose to interact with your computer.

  • The Age of the Unikernel: 10 Projects to Know
    When it comes to operating systems, container technologies, and unikernels, the trend toward tiny continues. What is a unikernel? It is essentially a pared-down operating system (the unikernel) that can pair with an application into a unikernel application, typically running within a virtual machine. They are sometimes called library operating systems because they include libraries that enable applications to use hardware and network protocols in combination with a set of policies for access control and isolation of the network layer. Containers often come to mind when discussion turns to cloud computing and Linux, but unikernels are doing transformative things, too. Neither containers nor unikernels are brand new. There were unikernel-like systems in the 1990s such as Exokernel, but today popular unikernels include MirageOS and OSv. Unikernel applications can be used independently and deployed across heterogeneous environments. They can facilitate specialized and isolated services and have become widely used for developing applications within a microservices architecture. [...] In this series of articles, we are looking at the projects mentioned in the guide, by category, providing extra insights on how the overall category is evolving. Below, you’ll find a list of several important unikernels and the impact that they are having, along with links to their GitHub repositories, all gathered from the Guide to the Open Cloud:
  • Mesa 17.0 Delayed To Allow For Ivy Bridge OpenGL 4.0
    Mesa 17.0 (formerly known as Mesa 13.1) was supposed to enter its feature freeze last weekend, but that milestone and branching of the code-base didn't happen due to last minute feature work.
